Kellys and Skellys in Ardee, Louth?
« on: Friday 09 March 18 03:12 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone tell me if there were separate Kelly and Skelly families in Ardee, Louth, in the 1820s? I found a likely baptism record for my g-g-g grandfather, transcribed as Kelly, but which actually looked like Skelly on the NLI parish records

Tithe Applotment books show a Lawrence Skelly and a John Kelly in Ardee civil parish in 1830, in different townlands.

There are 5 more civil parishes in Ardee RC parish

Does the record you are looking at give a townland name?

Thanks for answering my question, Sinann, and for the link (had checked a hard copy years ago for some possible Cork ancestors).
